Whose fault it is means very little; the issue is: What are you going to do about it?
- Solving the problem
- Turing the disaster into a learning experience
- Figuring out how to recover, recoup, and restart
This is what matters.
Mature people get this; immature people do not.
Hey, I’m not downplaying the hurt and pain, the loss and suffering. But last time I looked, most clocks don’t run backwards, they relentlessly tick forward. You must do the same—get up and get going. So something bad has happened, whose fault it is means very little; the issue is: What are you going to do about it?
Which will it be? Will you choose to be proactive and positive or are you going to be a victim and play the blame game?
- The ONE THING for today: When bad things happen keep your focus off whose fault it is; instead, focus on turning the experience into a stepping-stone for something better. With God on your side there is a way to do so.
8 He will keep you strong to the end so that you will be free from all blame on the day when our Lord Jesus Christ returns.
1 Corinthians 1:8 (NLT)
